A sheep strays through an open gate
A clouded realm welcoming his arrival
First he is alone;
Nobody is there.
He is lost in the isolation
Prisoner to his own emotion
Peering through at people so close,
Yet so far away.
Contact with and faith in the world:
Forgotten.

As if watching from afar
Perceiving a dream
Clouds drift into simultaneous thought
Alone in their flight.

Guilt: a wash of sin, bathes me
Drowns me.
Distorted faces of suspicious worry,
Anxious expressions of concern
Try, but fail,
As help is a tool for which i have no use
In the construction of my life.

Invisibly apparent.
Different yet unchanged.
Mind in reality, soul evaporated
Reluctantly raining down on me
If Hope comes out to play.

Laughter is the language of the soul.
Foreign.
Par conséquent, je ne comprends pas.
Just forgotten...

Desert Island.
Waves of unease crashing the sands serene
Cool winds slapping my face
Seeping through my soul
Removing last grains of happiness,
Of love.

Searching for something i can't explain
Listening but not hearing
Looking through blind eyes.
The sheep is searching for a way back to the realm he knew
He is lonely.
He is leaping through my soul.
